maybe you could give us a change log?
Posted 13 April 2012 - 06:40 AM
I don't like having my time wasted.
I want to know what has changed so I know whether it is worth the hours of uploading and upgrading.
I would have thought a change log is pretty standard practice but i can't seem to locate one on your links.

so that's all the bugs they fixed?
do we know if they changed anything else?
I think there should always be a link on the new release thread.
I don't know what the tracker thing is or if it covers all changes.

Is there a reason the announcement doesn't include any details? vBulletin (who we also use) are good at showing what's new or changed.
Posted 08 May 2012 - 10:48 AM
As someone mentioned earlier, it might be an idea (in the forum announcement topic at least) to mention the major bug fixes? I went to Tracker, but couldn't really work out how to get that view.

As for skin changes, you can always use the Template Merge Center to find changes and apply them to your skins:

Is there a reason IPB doesn't provide a list of style changes and an easy to find list of the bugs they squashed? Seems odd for a company that is otherwise good at communication
As a general rule, most users don't care to see a giant list of bug fixes. The ability, however, to generate this yourself is available in the Tracker for those who are interested (see Michael's reply).

I very much vote for IPS were provide changelogs of their newly announced products, I think they are useful to most of us. Once provided by the IPS team, it would save time to hundreds or thousands of admins who have to do the same in the Tracker.
Don't count me in with the "hundreds of thousands." If it's a maintenance release, it's for me.

When you're requesting change logs what exactly are you looking to see? I'm sure we can provide more info.
Please do not PM me but feel free to contact me by email.

At present each time there are maintenance releases I have to go to the Tracker and run the filter query to learn what are the fixes or to be lucky when some good soul makes the same and posts it to the forum for others (like the 2nd post of this thread). I think the list of changes or fixes or a link to such a list would be the little thing which would make it easier for 'many' of us

Why not just include a list (or even a link to the query) that shows you what has changed in the maintenance release? It seems to be quite a popular idea and doesn't take much time - do it once and everyone benefits - or don't do it and everyone has to. If you get what I mean

drupal did this and so when upgrading you could just look at each directory and compare the file dates to see which files needed replacing
